GUWAHATI, Oct 6: The Pratibandhi Suraksha Sangstha, Assam (PSSA) on Saturday demanded inquiry on the police atrocity took place on Friday upon the agitating members of the disabled while staging protest demonstration at Dispur Last Gate reiterating their longstanding demands. It must be mentioned here that city police resorted to brutal baton charge to dispense the protesters that led to several wounds.

Talking to reporters here on Saturday, PSS general secretary Nripen Malakar said that during the discussion held on August 2 between the State government and PSS, government assured them to publish advertisement for recruitment against the backlogs lying vacant for the specially abled within September 30. “However, the given assurance was not materialized. Hence, the protest rally was carried out on Friday only to remind that the Dispur did not keep their commitment,” said Malakar.

Malakar also revealed that after picking up the agitating members from Last Gate on Friday, police transported them to the premises of the 4th APBN at Kahilipara. “The police ironically pretended of providing treatment to our wounded members. Except reading blood pressure, the police did nothing for the wounds,” Malakar alleged. Highly criticizing the violent act of the police committed upon the members of the PSS, Malakar demanded an inquiry into the atrocity and stressed to punish the errant police officers involved with the condemnable act.

Notably, Malakar has been threatened by some miscreants over his mobile phone over the last couple of days. In this regard, an FIR has already lodged at Dispur police station. Hence, he alleged that there must be a collateral motive between the threatening calls and the atrocity committed by the city police on Friday.
